We got a good price on our hotel in Paris through Travel Republic and there were no problems. But one worry - Travel Republic are only an agent for the company paying for the hotel, which turned out to be the dubious-sounding Jumbo Tours, based in Spain. I suspect this means the credit card company would not be jointly liable if something should go wrong. Not happy with this way of doing business.
Search engine is good. Lots of choice available. Delay in booking the flights though. It took 2 days despite the fact that I could have booked the flights myself at any time. There was no explanation as to why this took so long. Customer services kept saying ring back later if the flights still not confirmed. I believe that if the flights had increased in price in this time I would have been liable for this extra cost. I always book last minute and am aware that flight prices can go up dramatically in a short space of time. That said the holiday went without a hitch. The hotel was better than expected. The resort was quiet but suited us and only a short bus ride to the main resort. Lots of bars and restaurants to choose from locally. Overall I would consider using Travel republic again.
Be careful with that company. We booked many extras for our holidays such as indoor garage at the hotel and return taxi service from the airport. The garage was not available at the hotel and they never send our reservation to the taxi company. When we called them we got a message that they would answer us in 20 seconds to be told after waiting on the line that their office was closed.

couldnt believe how easy it was to book with travel republic.and so economical,will use them again
I have used travel republic for the past 5 years and I have had no problems with any of my bookings for hotels or transfers. The price is always competitive I personally would go no where else.
We surfed sites for a cheap break away as we were both knackered and needed a rest!! Travel Republic is the cheapest website at this time, and it is unbeatable. We have no complaints and would recommend the site, and we would use it again.
Amazing deal and no problems at all with the booking. Queries were answered by phone and email very efficiently.
Would definitely use again and recommend to friends.
The main problem was the price advertised on your site for the room we had booked. We booked it for 214 euro, after 3 days of waiting for the hotel confirmation we were contacted to say those rooms were all gone and we had to pay 240 euro. My husband paid it and when we got to the hotel we found out that only 190 euro went to the hotel. The hotel charges 240 euro a night for the room all the time as i have been watching their website for a while. We only went with your site because it was cheaper. It feels like false advertising on your part you would still have made a profit from us had you charged us the price we booked it for. Also it took you so long to confirm the hotel booking it was wednesday before you got back to us. I wont be using your site again and I will not advise anyone to.

Have used Travel Republic on numerous ocassions and have never had any trouble with the holiday package that they have provided. They cover all aspects of the holiday - hotel, flight and transfers.
We have booked on-line through other agencies in the past and this was the first time we had used Travel Republic (our friends have always used them and recommeded we give them a go). We were VERY happy with the service, it was easy to understand, they kept us up to date with flight/transfer changes and having just returned from out wonderful holiday (which turned out exactly as it had been described) we will now be recommending Travel Republic to our other friends and family.
This is the second holiday i have booked through travel republic and i couldn't be happier. Its easy and simple. I ended up having to phone and book as i needed to pay on 2 cards and the staff were more than helpful. Will always use travel republic in the future.
I only wish i got paid for referring people to book with travel republic as i know lots of friends who after finding out how cheap my holiday was have also booked through them.
Never had a problem with Travel Republic, their price is often the best and often they offer excellent deals. I also good few upgrades when arriving at the hotel.
Plenty of choice and easy to navigate and book.
Definitively one of my favourite websites.
When booking my hotel, I carefully read through a substantial and complicated cancellation policy, requiring three days' notice. Yet when I tried to cancel three days prior, I was told that deeper in the cancellation requirements was a line saying that there was no cancellation was possible under any circumstances. I find this to be entirely misleading. There needs to be a clear, bold notice simply saying that no cancellation is possible without any mention of terms and conditions that don't apply.. In fact, a search through Travel Republic's listings turned up absolutely no accommodation anywhere in the world where cancellation is possible. So why mention notice, if not simply to mislead? This was a deeply frustrating experience. Customer Service was unhelpful and unsympathetic. I could not recommend Travel Republic on any level.

Easy to use, no hidden charges. Want to book only a flight - NO PROBLEM. Want to book only a hotel - NO PROBLEM, Want to book a flight and hotel - NO PROBLEM. You would be lucky to find anywhere cheaper. I love Travel Republic
I used travel republic for the fist time and found it to be a very simple and pleasant experience. I booked my flight, hotel and airport transfers with great ease. All documents were emailed to me along with reminders when information (ie passport information) was needed. All in all a great travel company - 5 stars..
This is the second time I have used Travel Republic, and would definitely use them again. I have found exactly what I was looking for each time. Their system is easy to use and confirmation is sent through quickly, so that you know all is ok! This time, I liked the fact that there was an offer to pay for flights and then pay for the hotel at a later date before travel: that would help some people spread the cost!
Everything went very smoothly.
Easy to use website, good prices and choice of hotels and room selection (not many website do the later well - Travel Republic does).
We have used a number of times and only one issue occurred when our seats were booked on the airline, the seat were separated and the airline could not change them!
Have always used them and will continue to do so. Prices very reasonable and have never had a problem with a booking
have used travel republic mainly for accommodation and transfers and never had problems. like the pick and mix where you choose whether you want package or just bits!
easy to compare and has honest reviews
Travel Republic is like the Ronseal of travel -- I know that sounds corny but I think it's true.
I've been using them and recommending them to friends and family for more than 5 years. Their prices are better than Alpharooms which I used to use before a fellow holiday maker recommended them for their better prices and better range of accommodation.
I'm just back from 15 nights in Tenerife at a wonderful apartment complex that I intend returning to next year with Travel Republic.
My holiday with Travel Republic was fantastic. Their website is very clear and what you see is literally what you get. It has an excellent search engine which gives you up to date information and cheap prices.
You are able to search for flights at a time that suits at a cost that also suits. There are a range of hotels to suit all needs and requirements. I will never use a travel agent again!!! Why when it is so easy to do it yourself with the help of Travel Republic x
I booked on their super-easy website, very user-friendly. Excellent price, honest reviews of the destination and simple booking process. I checked the price of the same holiday elsewhere and it was a lot more expensive on other companies' websites. Just returned from a brilliant two week holiday, everything was smooth and seamless and I will definitely use Travel Republic for my next vacation.
Recently booked a holiday in Portugal through travel republic, the prices were much cheaper than anywhere else which made me wonder if you get what you pay for! However everything went very smoothly from transfers to the hotel to the flights
